I have just received news that the UK Open Government Action Plan will be published at around 10am on Tuesday 28th May.
The govt plans a soft launch - online publication, and possibly the Govt Anti-Corruption Champion John Penrose will make a reference to the plan in his speech at the Summit.
I also wonder all along if its been Theresa May who has been blocking the process. Now that is a fun opengov conspiracy theory.
Anyway, in terms of our plans, given the news today, we will probably want to reformulate the ‘assuming an action plan is published’ statement. The first statement which was collecting singatures is now shelved.
The statement which we could publish maybe during the conference, or just as it started as before, could focus a little more on ‘new prime minister, new start,’ ‘hope for a new start etc’.
I am about to get on my flight to Canada for the summit so I cannot work on this - if people in the network can offer their opinions and ideas here, that will be very useful so I can work on this once I land, and get something drafted.
